But that’s not a knock on the idea of fitness trackers, just the execution: these gadgets could be amazing! All they have to do is start thinking for themselves. The Basis Band, a wristwatch-like tracker, could be the first to really understand that, so we found Basis’s booth at CES and asked them about it.
